Find out more about hiking levels here:
HIKE DISTANCE: 4 Miles (Round trip)
HIKE DURATION: 2 Hours (approx)
PARKING: You will need to park street side along the baseball field or residential side along San Pascual Ave. You may have a bit of a walk back to the stables, so make sure you get there early to account for finding parking.
(FYI: New signs have been posted that state San Pasqual Stables Parking is for Patrons only)
REQUIRED: WATER (at least one bottle of water)
RECOMMENDED: Water Bottle (at least 20 oz), comfortable shoes with grip, sun block, a hat.
HIKE WALKTHROUGH: From the horse stables we will walk towards the trail head and hike along the right hand side of the Arroyo Seco. We will pass underneath historical bridges, pass the archery range where we will cross to the other side of the arroyo (via overpass) and head back. The ground on this trail is flat but if we get a group of adventurous beginner hikers we can take a detour for a slight incline and extend the distance by about .75 miles and head back where this trail ends at Brookside Park.
RESTROOMS: There will be restrooms available to use 1/3 of the way in at the casting area.
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Yes, but on keep them on a leash. You must pick up after your pet.
